The name Aquamarine is derived from the Latin term ‘aqua marina’ which means the “water of the seas”. It was said to calm waves and keep sailors safe at sea.
Aquamarine is the traditional birthstone of people born in March, an optional birthstone for October and of Scorpions i.e. people born from 23rd of October to 21st of November.
It is also considered the 19th anniversary gemstone.
Myths surrounding this gemstone indicate that the first Aquamarines were found in treasure chests believed to be owned by mermaids. Some stories even claim that these blue stones originated from mermaids’ tales. This is the reason why they were considered a good luck charm for sailors and would protect them from seasickness and aid them in reaching their destination safely.
It is said that the stone evokes the calmness, audacity and relaxation of the sea, this is why it is also known as the ‘Stone of Courage’. The wearer of this gemstone experiences enhanced mental strength that are helpful in reducing anxiety and can even help them in overcoming the fear of public speaking.
The gorgeous gemstone is known to speed up the intellectual way of thinking and augments the responsive abilities. It helps the wearer in the learning process, not only about the world but also about the inner self. Also known as the stone of natural justice, it is also known to promote tolerance among people who tend to be more judgmental towards others.
